“Brydan on Rose” Accommodation, Blenheim, NZ

We were looking online for accommodation in Blenheim and discovered that Brydan was rated #1 by travelers. Some sites show it as Brydan Accommodation and others as Brydan on Rose. Unfortunately, the site also showed it was “fully booked.” We selected another property a little further down the same street; on passing the Brydan we saw their “Vacancy” sign and did a U-turn.

Don and Jane Parsons were our hosts and they are very warm and welcoming. They clearly wanted our stay to be an excellent one….their effort was not wasted…our stay was in fact excellent.

The property is a series of lovely individual buildings, each with it’s own character. The room we took had a large heated queen bed, two large Mac-Motion leather chairs, a dining table and chairs, kitchen with microwave, stovetop, kettle (with a selection of tea, coffee, chocolate), toaster, fridge, sink and all the dishware and cutlery needed. A container of milk was given to us on arrival and the sign in reception indicated that if you needed more it was there for you. The property is maintained to a very high standard. There is also a swimming pool and BBQ area (though as winter guests, we weren’t inclined to go swimming).

The bathroom was modern and large with a large modern whirlpool tub. The TV had 50+ channels and came with a DVD player and a selection (at reception) of movies/dvds. The TV is placed on a turntable so it can be seen from the bed or from the kitchen table.

Free WiFi is included although there was a problem when I was there. In response to my difficulty getting online, they promptly opened the Conference Center for me, and offered me access via an Ethernet connection…they also offered the reception area until they could get the “wireless router repair guy” out to the property.

Don and Jane spent some time finding out about our interests and then recommended, map in hand, restaurants, wineries and places that would be of interest to us. All were “spot on.”

We give Brydan the highest recommendation. We are planning our return to Blenheim and have already decided we’re staying with them again. …. If they let us…I forgot to return the key…sorry Don…sorry Jane.

Room Tip: View the rooms; there are minor differences which may make one room preferable to another for you. We wanted two leather chairs and so selected a room with two.

We were a group of fun loving Aussie chicks, and one local Kiwi, rounding out a girls 5 day wine trip to the wonderful Sauvignon Blanc region in Marlborough NZ. Having such a large group to cater for (12 of us), and make everyone happy, I did a lot of research into where we would stay! I am so glad we picked Brydan on Rose....Jane and Don were fantastic hosts and were so helpful in organizing our stay, suggesting places to eat, wineries to visit, trips to take etc.
Bryan on Rose itself is very clean, comfortable and in a great location in Blenheim. Close to the supermarket (for wine and chocolate supplies) and also handy for touring the wineries and proximity to the lovely town!
Our trip was celebrating 3 of our 40th birthdays and we were made to feel very welcome by Jane and Don...even organizing some wine and cheese plates for our arrival!
I could not recommend Brydan on Rose highly enough! Fantastic place!

This motel cannot be faulted.

It is a peaceful and comfortable home from home and the hosts are very attentive.

Will come again.

We recently stayed here at short notice after my mum was admitted to the local hospital. The units were clean, warm and spacious and only outshone by the incredibly supportive and caring hosts. We cannot recommend the Brydan highly enough and we will always be grateful for Jane and Don for making such a painful time easier.

We had planned a 2 day getaway to Blenheim for the family, and based on the reviews on Tripadvisor we decided on Brydan on Rose. We were not disappointed, our hosts Jane and Don were amazing, with nothing being a problem. We stayed in the family unit with our room down stairs and the Kids room being upstairs, even with there own TV. The rooms were spotless and it was great to have a dishwasher in the Kitchen. They had to have the best Spa I have ever been in and the grounds were a great place for the kids to safely play in. We enjoyed our stay so much we decided to stay an extra night.Thank you Don and Jane for a great stay and the scones were delicious.
